The Stony Brook University Sailing Team started this semester ranked 43rd out of 52 teams in the Middle Atlantic Intercollegiate Racing Association (MAISA). As their successful spring season campaign winds down they are now ranked 22nd. The team qualified for the Second Tier Regional Conference Championships within MAISA.
On the weekend of Oct. 19, the SBU Sailing Team once again made the trek to the Bronx to race in the North Fall #2 regatta at SUNY Maritime. Racing took place in the East River between the Throgs Neck and Whitestone Bridges. This was a qualifier regatta for the MAISA – the Mid-Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association – (the Conference in which SBU competes) Fall Championship, so the competition was fierce. A total of 18 schools participated in the regatta.
